Sharks Use 9 Picks, Make No Splash at NHL Draft

(Originally published at Sports Radio Service)

The San Jose Sharks were poised for a busy draft weekend, but as the weekend wrapped up, they had not made any blockbuster moves. They seem to be close to filling out their coaching staff, but still need a starting goalie and probably another defenseman.

The Sharks traded a 2016 second round pick and a sixth round pick in 2016 to the Colorado Avalanche for the 31st overall pick. Their third round pick went for American goaltender Mike Robinson. In all, the Sharks used nine picks in this year’s draft. The full list can be found on the Sharks’ website. (more…)

The event is an entertaining break to the off-season for fans missing hockey, and a chance to see players who may be with the Sharks next season and many who certainly will be playing for the San Jose Barracuda. Last year, the scrimmage was well-attended and at first glance could have been a real game.
